The story that I was going to tell you was about our lovely TT neighbor-小胖胖. 小胖胖's dad is American while his mom is Chinese. Bobbie has been talking about him all the time when she saw him in the hallway, and apparently he really liked her too!
Anyways, this Friday (yes, my birthday) when I walked out of gym from my workout, I indistinctly heard someone mummbling behind my back in Chinese and the phrase sounded like "阿姨". At that moment, I thought I must heard it wrong or that phrase is NOT referring to me whatsoever, but I was WRONG indeed. 小胖胖's dad walked up toward me and started talking to me in Chinese. He even asked 2 years old 小胖胖 to call me "阿姨"!!! Sigh, I guess I'm just getting old and even Americans are calling me 阿姨 now (if you know what I mean). Nacho, on the other hand, had a different perspective. He was telling me that since I'm 22 years older than 小胖胖 so it made perfect sense for him to call me 阿姨 instead of 姐姐.
